Immigration Seminar Two 2008 (CPD Accredited)

‘Benefiting from the recent decision in HSMP Forum Ltd, R (on the application of) v Secretary of State for the Home Department [2008]: Resolving status issues for HSMP holders and families.’

  

 

Migrants already in the UK under HSMP visas were subjected to the new requirements of the updated points-based system to qualify for extensions. As a result, many people already working in the UK were facing difficulties in extending their status. One adverse change which affected many HSMP holders was an increase in the number of years – from four to five – of residency required before becoming eligible to apply for indefinite leave to remain.

This seminar will consider the implications of Mr Justice Newman’s ruling in the recent case of HSMP Forum Ltd, R (on the application of) v Secretary of State for the Home Department [2008].

Attendees will be able to discuss mechanisms for those already admitted to the UK maximise from the restatement of the law to the position before the recent changes.
